|University Undergraduate Advising Handbook|
According to Senate Policy 47-20, grades are based on the instructor's judgment of a student's scholastic achievement (see Grades and Grade-Point Average). The instructor's basis for grades must be included on the course syllabus. If there is a disagreement about a grade, the student should try to resolve it with the instructor.
If a disagreement about a grade cannot be resolved with the instructor, the student may follow the Grade Mediation and Adjudication procedure.
Note: Situations involving academic dishonesty are covered in Senate Policy 49-20.
The University may make changes in policies,
procedures, educational offerings, and requirements at any time. Please
consult a Penn State academic adviser for more detailed information.
